Sharing Dots

Sharing Dots is a boutique creative agency I co-founded in 2015. Sharing Dots uses strategic communication and media production to help organizations and their clients be seen, heard, understood, and acquire the funding needed to expand their impact.

I work with organizations all over Asia who are engaged in many different forms of humanitarian work. A recent brand strategy, video production and website design project was instrumental in helping Friends of Thai Daughters raise more than $850,000 to build a new campus.


5DayDeal is a social impact company I co-founded in 2013. During my tenure as CEO from 2013 to 2014 the company achieved its goals of more than $2 million in revenue and $250,000 donated to charity. 5DayDeal offers great deals on photography education and training while raising money for charitable causes around the world.

I sold the company to my co-founders and partners in 2015 and they have continued to create exceptional value for their customers and have increased the charitable impact of the business to more than $2.5 million since 2014.

Past Clients

Bryon helped us develop our current branding and communications strategy, including our current website. We have been extremely pleased, not only with the quality of his work, but with his commitment to excellence and professionalism, as well as the high regard and respect he has for the people we serve.

Christine Ojih – Assistant to the Director, YWAM Mercy Vietnam

Bryon rapidly absorbed a lot of new information, some of which challenged his previous perspectives. I was amazed how quickly Bryon processed it and started contributing back to me in a constructive and meaningful way. Ever since that first meeting Bryon has been a valuable partner, I continue to recommend Bryon to all of our partners and regularly turn to him for advice and guidance.
